I am a Consultant Oncoplastic Breast Surgeon based at King’s College Hospital, London. It is one of the biggest provider of specialised services in England. I was trained in plastic surgery overseas and completed my specialist higher surgical training in General and Breast Oncoplastic Surgery from London Deanery (South East Thames rotation). Pursuing my interest in Breast Oncoplastic Surgery and Breast reconstruction, I did a one-year prestigious international fellowship in Australia where I learnt techniques which complements my experience. I was trained in world renowned hospitals of London and Australia. I further consolidated his experience in Italy, Austria, Spain and Japan. After completing my training, I took substantive post at Ipswich Hospital NHS trust. Having worked for six years, establishing breast oncoplastic services in Suffolk now I moved to King’s. I have extensive experience in the latest techniques in breast cancer surgery such as therapeutic mammoplasty, breast reconstruction using implant and acellular dermal matrix, breast reduction, symmetry surgery, nipple reconstruction and breast augmentation surgery. I believe in putting the patient at ease from the first meeting and follows them through to completion of treatment. My aim is to provide high quality comprehensive breast service. My practice ethos is to achieve optimal oncological clearance of the breast cancer and while ensuring the best possible cosmetic outcome.
Following my diagnosis at Ipswich Hospital with breast cancer in Nov 2014, Mr Garg performed a therapeutic mammoplasty on my right breast, removing all the cancerous tissue with clear margins. The result is excellent with minimum scarring. Mr Garg has always taken the time to explain every step of my treatment, and recently when I was suffering some pain he saw me personally to reassure me and diagnosed costochondritis. I found him to be an excellent surgeon, very thorough, who takes great pride in his work and also has a caring bedside manner. Thank you Mr Garg.
The service I received from Mr Garg and his team was extremely good. He took the time to explain what was going to happen the exact nature of the surgery he would perform complete with diagrams to help me understand. The stichting was really neat and is already starting to fade. He was there for the follow up appointments and did not keep me waiting too long. I really appreciate the support that I have received from Mr Garg and the rest of the breast cancer team.
I have been attending the breast clinic for the last four months. During this time I have been very impressed by everyone in the team. All the staff have a highly professional approach to the patient, which is coupled to a compassion and understanding of the concerns and worries associated with my condition. In particular, I would like to thank the surgical teams who performed my operations. I was dealt with in a very understanding and professional way, and in particular I would like to compliment the work of Mr Neeraj Garg and Miss Mortimer for their excellent surgical work and for their subsequent follow-up care.
On Monday 1st June I was seen very promptly for my follow up appointment. Mr Garg was the surgeon who carried out my lumpectomy two years ago. At the time he was very informative about the procedure I would have and took great care to explain how important it was for breasts to look good after surgery. That this would help psychologically with recovery and he is absolutely right. I am very pleased with the result. It is reassuring to have annual follow up appointments.
As a result of a regular mammogram a small lump was identified in my breast, after a biopsy it was confirmed as cancerous - but the Breast Care Clinic were fantastic - Mr Garg and Sue Yates, Breast Care nurse, couldn't have been more supportive. Everything was explained to me and my husband in great detail - we felt quite reassured about my future health. Even when I had to go back for further surgery to remove more nodes we still felt confident of a positive outcome. Mr Garg is a lovely natured man - so easy to talk to - caring manner and seems to know what you are going to ask before you do so. A real professional. I am very impressed with his skill as a surgeon - minimal scaring - even after being operated on the same place twice! We have been very impressed by the whole Breast Care Clinic and the South Theatre team - 10/10. Now about to go to Radio Therapy where already I feel at ease and feel people care.
